Photos from the Downtown Showdown, ski and board jib rail competition, in Portland, Maine.
Yesterday I took my family to see the Downtown Showdown in Monument Square, here in Portland, Maine. There was a 30 foot staircase built in Monument Square and skiers and snow boarders competed with rail tricks. It was a jib fest right downtown in sleepy Portland, Maine.
I went as more of a spectator than a photographer. I had my 6 year old son on my shoulders for most of the photos, and I was elbow to elbow with the other folks jostling for viewing positions.
(Next time: arrive early, finagle a spot inside the fence, set up lights, shoot like mad.)
You can check out the whole Downtown Showdown slideshow on my Downtown Showdown Flickr page.
I hope Sunday River and Sugarloaf continue to put on moreDowntown Showdown events in years to come.
Photographs from the Maine Strobist Meetup in Biddeford, ME.
The Strobist Meet-up in Biddeford, ME was a great. The space at North Dam Mill was fantastic and the event was well attended. The models were fun (especially Joanna) and the photographers were really cool.
More photos on my Flickr page.
I’d like to say thanks to Joanna, Tim and especially Gary from Chasing The Sun Photography for hosting the event.
